Lovely antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque area French Empire style 15 3/4" tall wall shelf unit in solid mahogany with gilt bronze appliques, mirrored backing and wonderful visual & decorative appeal! Thereâs just about nothing more elegant, in my opinion, than the old French Empire style. Always popular, weâve had a variety of pieces in this style ranging from inkwells & desk top accoutrement, stationery stands, vases, fabulous old caskets with gilt bronze & Baccarat cut crystal or glass. All exquisite and always quick sellers. This a two shelf piece for display of small treasures perhaps. A mirror backing so will reflect light onto anything displayed there making them stand out even more. Solid old mahogany with old hardware and tons of appeal, don't miss it!
Very good condition. There is a chipped/broken lower portion of that front bit of wood on the lower shelf (to which the bronze appliqué is attached). As noted in the images, the mirror is a replacement and we simply secured it in place with a panel of tan moire silk. See pictures for measurements.
